BlueFire Signs Agreement with Permian Basin Distributor

Company presence expected to generate substantial business in the region

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- BlueFire Equipment Corporation (OTCQB: BLFR) announced today that it has signed an agreement with Midland, Texas agent Tom Willis to serve as its representative in the Permian Basin. Willis will facilitate a local business presence for BlueFire, allowing greater collaboration with customers in the region. He will make BlueFire's proprietary polycrystalline diamond cutter (PDC) drill bit technology more accessible to drillers operating in the area and engage the company in other transactions for equipment and services.

Crude oil production in the Texas Permian Basin is approaching a million barrels per day according to Karr Ingham, a petroleum economist for the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers. BlueFire's PDC drill bits are expected to become a sought-after commodity for their higher rates of penetration (ROP) and longer bit runs in hard rock formations and shales such as those found in the area.

Chairman and CEO of BlueFire Equipment Corporation William A. Blackwell said, "Drilling operators in West Texas will appreciate BlueFire's high performance technology and boots on the ground to deliver top customer service on location." He added, "We welcome Tom to the BlueFire team and we are confident he will add even more value to our innovative and cost saving drilling equipment."

As previously announced, this proprietary bit allows much faster and longer drilling, without the need to stop and pull the entire drill pipe out of the well to replace a spent drill bit. According to recent findings, some wells can be drilled using a BlueFire bit without a single bit change, potentially saving considerable time and costs for the driller. Last month, BlueFire announced it is working with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for an additional drilling tool patent.
